Apparently the Deer Tick does Nirvana (aka Deervana) sensation sweeping the nation will draw to a close this summer, so we’re pleased to bid adieu by offering up this bonus footage from our video shoot of their new song, Funny Word earlier this summer. Here we have a tribute to the song, Serve The Servants off of the final Nirvana studio album, In Utero (1993).
Singer, John McCauley’s hoarse vocals and his band of punk historians not only mimic, but pay proper homage to the late legend, Kurt Cobain in this project which has earned additional acclaim after playing surprise Nirvana tribute sets at Bonnarroo Music Festival and others as documented here in the New York Times Magazine.
Between the pukingly-outrageous WttW Sled Island after party at the Area and being guested by the band at Edmonton Folk Festival last weekend, we foresee a rendezvous Mach III with Deer Tick in the very near future – stay tuned to the West for another bonus Tick nug from the Vault this autumn.
